New Bees Arrive Spring 2013

The Healcrest Apiary is Buzzing with Activity

We are so fortunate to have 3 groups of folks managing hives at Healcrest. It began last Spring 2012 with Jen and John, and the tradition has continued with Natalya and Dana with new hives this spring season.

Soon Meg will add her hives to the mix and the results will be amazingly delicious!
